The Slow Drip from the Sewage Flood

The recovery effort during
the sewage backup ( has just teased out a little more information about the hold-up in re-opening of the Potomac Yard Harris Teeter (Board Discusses Harris Teeter ‘Claims’ in Closed Session).

The store shuttered last Spring because of a malfunction in Arlington sewer system has stated that are looking for "re-assurances" before reopening. As of last month no suits had been filed according to Arlington County staff, but at last night's County Board meeting, the governing body adjourned to executive session to review “two matters requiring consultation with the County Attorney and staff concerning pending claims made by Harris Teeter and others, arising from an incident on May 11, 2012.”

There's still no news on when (or if) the Harris Teeter will reopen, but it's also clear that something is happening between the company and the County.
